Samsung A71 Keyboard Lag

The last few days I have been getting intermittent lag when trying to type text anywhere on my phone. It just seems to freeze and then moments later everything just catches up and all at once. When it does happen and it's very random the screen freezes as well if I try and swipe it off. Any ideas as never had this problem until now.

Hi @Gazlar18 

 

First I'd try a soft reboot by turning the phone Off and On.

 

Make sure there are no relevant software updates for your keyboard. 

 

You can reset the Samsung Keyboard by pressing the cog icon in your keyboard .

I have exactly the same problem, started about 3 weeks after first using A71. I've done a hard reset 3 times now and only used the phone with standard apps without installing anything else and it still doesn't fix it. It lags when typing or scrolling on any apps like the news or web browser. The lag is a 3-4 second freeze then it starts again and then repeats many times a day. I'm beginning to think the firmware needs fixing from Samsung.

Thanks for your message Simon DD.I had tried all possible options with the troubleshooting and this issue remained..its frustrating as my previous phone s8 has no lag.im back to using that.i have sent the phone back to the retailer.it was playing on my mind as I cant be stuck with this issue for the foreseeable future.i think the connectivity isn't great with wifi either..I will stick to S series from now on..

After trying things like resets and cache clearing nothing worked however I have found a non ideal solution and that is to put the phone into medium battery power saving mode, you can do this in the settings under 'device care'. It doesn't affect the phones performance as such but it does restrict some background things which may be an issue for some. On the plus side however, I never have the lag and freeze any more and my battery lasts longer too. It is a pain and to be honest we should be able to send our phones back and get replacements instead of having to switch power saving mode but I have a nice working phone again.

Thanks Gaz1807 for the temp fix - the medium battery power saving mode has fixed the lag issue - my phone stress levels have now returned to normal. Nothing else seems to have slowed down on the phone either. Just wish Samsung would acknowledge the problem and either issue a fix or swap out the phone.

I have tried the battery setting but this only works for a period of time. I am now speaking to Samsung on twitter...

hi, I had no problems at all when in battery saving mode but we shouldn't have to keep doing that, I've literally gone back to my samsung a70 at the moment. Can you keep us posted if you have any success talking to Samsung on Twitter please.
